How To Make French Toast

Updated on October 31, 2014

Easy French Toast for Breakfast

French toast is a delicious breakfast dish.

It's not the breakfast I recommend as a daily routine, rather as a small luxury for yourself.

Sunday mornings are my French Toast mornings. It's quick enough to get together, just bread which has been soaked in egg and fried till golden. Then a leisurely coffee on the patio with the crossword.

French toast, Hong Kong style, is my reward to myself for a hard week's work.

French Toast Hong Kong Style

French Toast, Hong Kong style is made by quickly frying sliced bread dipped in beaten egg, and served with a slab of butter and topped with golden syrup. Then add whatever fruit is in season.

Absolutely self-indulgent!


  • 4 Medium Sized Eggs
  • 1 Knob of Butter
  • 25 ml Milk
  • Salt and Pepper
  • French Bread
  • Fresh Fruit


  1. Slice up the french bread ready for dipping
  2. Melt a knob of butter in a frying pan to provide extra flavour and a non-stick surface
  3. While the butter is melting, crack the eggs into a mixing bowl and add to it the milk. Whisk the egg and milk up till the yolks are broken and the mixture goes a lovely golden colour
  4. Add a pinch of salt and pepper to the mix
  5. Take each slice of bread and dip it into the egg mixture until it is completely coated and has soaked up the egg
  6. Carefully place each slice of bread into the now hot frying pan
  7. After about 2 minutes flip each of the slices over to cook the other side
  8. Serve with slices of fresh fruits

Pain Perdu

Pain Perdu (Lost Bread) uses up stale bread - another delicious variant of French Toast.

You slice the hard bread on the bias and dip the slices into a mixture of egg, milk, sugar, cinnamon and vanilla. Pan-fry them in butter and serve dusted with powdered sugar and jam on the side.

      That's very handy for busy day breakfasts! Sounds yummy too, I always fry the egg first and then munch it with toasted bread but french toast sounds like my next option for quick and tasty breakfast! Thanx for sharing it :)
